Jennifer Dins has been making metal clay jewelry since 2009 after a potentially terminal cancer diagnosis in 2006 permanently sidelined her from a 25-year management career. She retired in 2009 to follow her creative heart and to explore this new medium. Working with metal clay is easy on her hands and allows her to feel a sense of accomplishment every time a piece is complete. The uniqueness of this material allows her to add personalization to her work, adding fingerprints, paw prints and even handwriting directly into the silver. She now believes it is her calling to help people manage a particularly difficult time through the creation of meaningful sterling silver heirloom pieces.
